XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 - is my block fakked?

Hey all, concerning my new setup you can see it here; :p
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/309433-31-current-setup-future-upgrades-smart#t2300174

I took out my block the other day from it's packing and it looks like it has a tarnish :( (unsure, my first piece of copper)
I have a few pictures - would you say this small imperfection could screw up my cooling potential? I'm not going for an 'Ub3r 1337' perfect setup so a 1-2 degree difference won't really matter to me.

Thanks for all input,

    So; you're saying it's ok? :sweat:
  3. Yes
  4. It's fine...if you want to restore the glossy shine...rub it with ketchup for a few mins or soak it in a 50/50 distilled water and vinegar solution...should clear it right up.

    Otherwise, won't hurt anything.
  5. Yeah, you've got nothing to be concerned about. That's barely worth talking about. Check out what a performance affecting tarnish looks like over here.
